Description of problem:
The AppStream implementations (AppStream and appstream-glib) are moving to standardize on /usr/share/metainfo.
Most RPM based Linux distributions currently install into /usr/share/appdata, but there's pressure from upstream to move to the "new" directory.
GNOME and KDE have already started adapting to install to the new path, and things reusing their build scaffolding (CMake modules, autotools scripts, Meson snippets, etc.) will do the same.
We need to move to /usr/share/metainfo to ensure we don't break with upstream projects.
CC'in appstream-glib maintainer and assigning to appstream maintainer
Or should this report be cloned for appstream-glib?
appatream, appstream-glib =>
This actually doesn't really affect either of them that much.
There's a patch I'll have to drop and path fix in appstream, but beyond that, nothing there.
This bug is for all packages in the entire distribution that install *.appdata.xml or *.metainfo.xml files into /usr/share/appdata.
